Ready for Eating Disorders Awareness Week?

We have lots of resources to help you prepare.

Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW) 2024 | 26 February - 3 March 2024

You asked. We listened.

This year we are shining a light on a health condition that we know doesn't always get the attention it deserves: ARFID.

Why ARFID?

ARFID stands for avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder and is a largely unknown and misunderstood eating disorder.  ARFID can have serious consequences for health if left untreated.

The number of people affected by ARFID is unknown. Treatment is not available nationwide and people with ARFID, or who suspect they may have it, struggle to access the help they need.

How can I get involved?

There are many ways you can get involved in EDAW 2024. Follow our socials, access information and resources to help promote EDAW, subscribe to receive our emails or use this website to find out more in the coming weeks. Our What's on page is a good place to start to find out about our online events and support groups.
